Campus Inclusion & Community has changed. Here's why and how.
The preceding structure was decentralized and didn't meet students' needs.
- In Spring 2012 students identified a need for intentional interactions across lines of difference. In Fall 2012, Campus Inclusion and Community was created (now Social Justice Education).
- In Fall 2012 a group of students approached the administration concerning the lack of comprehensive support for first generation students and low income students. A focus group was conducted in Spring 2013, and Student Affairs administrators worked to establish Student Enrichment Services in Fall 2014.
- A 2014 survey conducted by Multicultural Student Affairs and a program review of the office that same year together found that while some segments of the student body are well served, there were gaps in its reach. Students felt excluded and called for programming with a focus on intersectionality.
